Here is the Midterm I and the Midterm I with solutions.
The exams were graded and will be returned in recitation on Tuesday (03/06). (You can check your grades in Blackboard.) If you are not in recitation that day, you have to contact your TA pick up yours. The results were very bad. Statistics are available at Blackboard.
If I were to curve these grades, roughly speaking we would have A's above 90, B's above 77, C's above 60, and D's above 50. This is only to give you an idea of how I will curve the final grades. (In the end I will not even look at this curve, I will just curve all the final averages.)
Back to the TOP.
Here is the Midterm II and the Midterm II with solutions.
The exams were graded and the results can be seen in Blackboard. If you have not picked up your exam yet, you have to contact your TA pick it up.
The results of the exam were just OK. We had lots of very good grades (above 90) and lots of very bad grades (below 60). The average was 61.42 and the median was 63. The highest score was 100. (You can see more statistics in Blackboard.)
If I were to curve these grades, roughly speaking we would have A's above 90, B's above 75, C's above 60, and D's above 50. This is only to give you an idea of how I will curve the final grades. (In the end I will not even look at this curve, I will just curve all the final averages.)

Here is the final: Final, Final Solution.
Back to the TOP.
This is a course in Differential Calculus. Calculus is a very important subject with applications in many areas and fundamental to physics and engineering.
In this semester we will study limits, derivatives, and applications to physics and in optimizations. The second semester deals with Integral Calculus, but it is strongly related to the content of the first semester.
We will likely cover the following: Chapters 2 to 4 and Sections 11.1 and 11.3.
Note that this outline is subject to change slightly without prior notice.
Homeworks will be assigned after every class and the selected problems and due dates will be posted at the section Homework of this page. No paper copy of the HW assignments will be distributed in class. It is your responsibility to check the course's web page page often! Besides HW assignments, other important information will be posted there. (Check the section Important Notes often!)
If you like to do your HW early, you can do problems in the list of Problems Likely To Be Assigned below, even before I assigned them. I might change a problem or two for the actual assignment, but that is not very likely. I hope to be able to keep this list ahead of the class, so that you can always start early. It will also be useful if I, for some reason, delay to post problems.
Also, some times I might get too ambitious in posting problems, i.e., I might think we will cover a section during the week, put exercises from it in the next assignment, and then end up not being able to finish it. In this case I might have to take a few problems off the assignment. The bottom line is the following: the assignment is not final until I remove the "More to come" from it. (If you've done problems which were removed, just saved them for the following week.)
Finally, if there is still a "More to come" in an assignment on a Monday afternoon, please write me right away so that I can update it. (If I delay in replying, you can proceed with the Problems Likely To Be Assigned.)
The HWs will be due in lecture Wednesday, when you will either turn in your HW or take a quiz on problems taken directly from the HW set due on that day. In the former case, two or three problems will be graded and count the same as a quiz. In the the latter, the HW will not be collected at all. You will NOT know in advance if the HW will be collected or if there will be a quiz, and hence you should be prepared for either one.
The quizzes will take place at the beginning of the lecture. You will not have time to ask questions before the quiz, so you should take your questions to recitation of the previous day. You also won't have extra time if you arrive late. Moreover, you will have only ten or fifteen minutes to take a quiz, and so if you hadn't already solved the HW problems, you might not have enough time to come up with a solutions.
Points will be taken from messy solutions in all assignments, and you need to show work in all questions (unless stated otherwise)! This applies to quizzes, HWs, exams and all graded work!
Calculators will not be allowed! This includes HW (unless stated otherwise), quizzes, and exams! This is a difficult decision as computer experimentation can be quite useful. But I believe one should understand well the process before delegating it to computers/calculators. Moreover, the power of small devices these days might give unfair advantages to some over others who don't have as advanced equipment.
I will do my best to post solutions to the most difficult problems. If I do, they will be posted in the course page.
In my opinion, doing the HW is one of the most important parts of the learning process, so the weight for them is greater than the weight of a single midterm, and I will assume that you will work very hard on them.
Also, you should try to come to my office hours (or your TA's) if you are having difficulties with the course. I will do my best to help you. Please try to come during my scheduled office hours, but feel free to make an appointment if that would be impossible.
Finally, it is your responsibility to keep all your graded Quizzes and Midterms! It is very important to have them in case there is any problem with your grade. You can check all your scores at Blackboard. (Blackboard will be used only for scores. The official course page is this one.)
There will be no make-up quizzes or exams. If you miss a quiz or exam and have a properly documented reason, your final will be used to make-up your score.
You will have to check your e-mail at least once a week, preferably daily. I will use your e-mail (given to me by the registrar's office) to make announcements. (If that is not your preferred address, please make sure to forward your university e-mail to it!) I will assume that any message that I sent via e-mail will be read in a week or less, and it will be considered an official communication.
I have an On-line Feedback Form where you can anonymously send me your comments and suggestions. I will consider your comments and try to do whatever I can to resolve possible problems before it is too late. So, please, feel free to use it whenever you have any constructive comment or suggestion. (In fact, I would greatly appreciate it.) If you don't want you comments to be anonymous, just send me an e-mail or come by my office and we can discuss the problem.

Academic Integrity
Study, preparation and presentation should involve at all times the studentâ€™s own work, unless it has been clearly specified that work is to be a team effort. Academic hon- esty requires that the student present his or her own work in all academic projects, including tests, papers, homework, and class presentation. When incorporating the work of other scholars and writers into a project, the student must accurately cite the source of that work. (See Academic Standards of Conduct, pg. 12.)
All students should follow the Honor Statement: from Hilltopics 2011/2012, pg. 12:
Honor Statement
``An essential feature of The University of Tennessee is a commitment to maintaining an atmosphere of intellectual integrity and academic honesty. As a student of the University, I pledge that I will neither knowingly give nor receive any inappropriate assistance in academic work, thus affirming my own personal commitment to honor and integrity.''
You should also be familiar with the Classroom Behavior Expectations.
Students with disabilities that need special accommodations should contact the Office of Disability Services and bring me the appropriate letter/forms.

PLEASE, HIT ``REFRESH'' (OR ``RELOAD'') IN YOUR BROWSER WHEN VISITING THIS PAGE!!!!!!! I usually get messages asking for the update in the HW when it has already been updated. Since I change this page often, some times the browser don't see the changes. But, if you hit refresh and there is still problems missing, feel free to write me.
If it is already Monday afternoon and there still is a ``More to come'' after the HW assignment due on the coming Wednesday, write me an e-mail at lfinotti@utk.edu, and I'll update it and let you know.
